Spritz has remained a favorite for summertime cocktails and bubbly aperitifs. This one is simple enough: Campari, white wine, and soda. But the complexity of the liqueur with the sparkle of the soda water gives it a big character.
We found a lovely little Campari alternative at our local Total Wine last time around. Leopold Bros Aperitivo. A little more bitter, with a heavier citrus note. Great in this cocktail, and adds a different kick to your standard Negroni.
